Liberty Breakfast: By Luke Barson (Rev)-‘’A Heart Of Gratitude” Pt. 1

Share this



Three years ago, whilst driving on the motorway, I ran into an accident scene. A trotro (usually private public transport in Ghana) veered off it’s lane and hit a Landcruiser, killing a white man instantly, and injuring two others seriously. I was probably the second person to get there. I called the police immediately. It was a horrific situation. Whilst I was making the calls, other cars were stopping, whilst others were trying to rescue the two white men trapped in their Landcruiser. Passengers in the trotro were exclaiming! “Thank You Jesus”! “Thank You Jesus”! “Thank You Lord”!.

I am very sure many of us have expressed those exclamations following a close call on the high way, getting a job offer or getting a baby after many years of agonising in expectancy for a child. Gratitude is a state of appreciation, an Act Of Thanksgiving which causes us to be humble, and recognise an act of kindness, service or caring from someone else, which lifts us and strengthen us. On the other hand, ingratitude is the attitude of being unaware; not recognising that someone has assisted us; even worst, when we know our strength and effort couldn’t have accomplished it, and we refuse to express gratitude privately or publicly. Gratitude expressed to God for what we have brings inner peace, and acknowledges that, He ( God) is the ruler of our lives.

Psalm 92:1-2 ” It is good to praise the Lord….proclaiming your love in the morning and your faithfulness at night”.

When we show gratitude to God, either through music or prayer, we should realise the importance of using His name. Our hearts and minds must gain His full attention. God never gets tired of blessing us or hearing our praise or gratitude. We must recognise the hand of God in our lives everyday, not only when things are good.

“Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that can not be shaken, let us be THANKFUL, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe”.( Hebrews 12:28 NIV)

To be cont..

Stay blessed always and remember to love someone and mean it.
